This is a statement to declare that Child Aid Gambia is in no way affiliated with the organisation ‘EduRes Foundation’ in the Gambia run by Mr Yahya N Darboe of Silver Spring, Maryland, USA and also the Gambia.
We did not give any permission for our photographs to be used on their website and social media pages, and our photographs have been reproduced by them unlawfully. Child Aid Gambia has never had any connection to EduRes Foundation, and the individuals in the photographs have not given their consent to be published on any website or social media pages other than that of Child Aid Gambia. Nor did Mr. Yahya N Darboe or any other person connected with the EduRes Foundation contact Child Aid Gambia or ask permission to use any of our photographs or pay and fees to do so.
We have written to Mr. Yahya N Darboe of the EduRes Foundation asking him to immediately cease using Child Aid Gambia’s photographs in respect of the EduRes Foundation’s campaigns and facebook page and any other promotional material, whether online or in hard copy (including all banners, leaflets, posters etc.) and cease infringing Child Aid Gambia’s intellectual property rights, and confirm in writing to us that it has done so;
So far we have received no reply from Mr. Yahya N Darboe or any trustee of the EduRes Foundation.
